For the last day under one pot / combo meals, I have the very famous Pongal served with Sambar and the evergreen Vada with Rasam. I am a hard core fan of South Indian breakfast . My elder daughter went to Chennai after getting married but after a couple of years she shifted here for three years. In these three years every time we went to her house it was always for breakfast. It was always a nice big spread. Both my daughter and her mil are fantastic cooks, specially South Indian . Now that she has gone back to Chennai, we miss those breakfasts ! Here is a breakfast which is no way close to the one she used to make , but definitely very pleasing . I cannot talk much about a South Indian Breakfast as you guys are well versed with this cuisine. Here is a little effort, hope you guys enjoy it.


1/2 cup rice
1/2 cup yellow Moong Daal
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
8-10 peppercorns
2 green chilly,
A small piece ginger


Wash and Soak the Daal and rice for an hour.
Pressure cook them with 3 cups of water, salt, pinch Cardamon.
Pressure cook for a whistle and then simmer for about 10 minutes.
Check !
Heat ghee in a pan, add ghee, peppercorns, cumin seeds, ginger , green chilly, curry leaves and split cashews.
Add the ghee to the radial rice, mix well.
Serve hot with Sambar.
